The Ridgefield Planning and Zoning Commission and Inland and Wetlands Board have given the go ahead for development of a five acre parcel of the former Schlumberger land.  After a second public hearing Tuesday night, developer Steve Zemo's application was approved. 


Zemo, who is also a Selectman, plans to use one acre for a self-storage business, with eight two-bedroom apartments on the second floor.  The other four acres will be for an 85-room assisted-living facility.  Solana Ridgefield will be developed by Formation Development Group.  About 30 percent of the facility will be for people with memory disorders.


Charter Group Partners is developing age-restricted townhouses and condos, for people 55 years and older, on another 10 acres of the town-owned land. 


BassamFellows, a luxury furniture and design firm, plans to move into the Philip Johnson building on the former Schlumberger site.  ACT, a local theater group, will occupy the neighboring auditorium.
